Continuing our survey of individual Tudor City buildings, here's the lowdown on The Woodstock, known within the French Company as the Seventh Unit.
|320 E. 42nd Street, at sunrise|
➺ Opened May 1, 1929. Faced with red brick, trimmed with limestone
and terra cotta. It once had a spire, removed in the 1940s for reasons unknown.
➺ 459 apartments, arranged over 32 stories. The tallest building in Tudor City (and the tallest apartment building in Manhattan when it first opened). Most units are studios, with some one- and two-bedroom apartments on the upper floors.
➺ Opened as an Apartment
Hotel (efficiency apartments offering hotel amenities like room service from
the on-premises restaurant, plus maid and laundry services, for an additional
fee). The original onsite restaurant was converted to a club room around 1942.
